Şuraya atla: kullan, ara

Version: 8.0 - 9.0


You want to set up your DSL access with the SpeedTouch USB DSL modem under SUSE Linux.


You need the Alcatel/Thomson management software available at
To install the management software, proceed as follows:

  1. Log in as 'root' user.
  2. Unpack the management software with the command:
    tar -xvzf speedmgmt.tar.gz
  3. Change to the new directory "mgmt" by entering:
    cd mgmt.
  4. Enter the following commands in this order to compile and install the software:
    make install

Make sure that the packages make, gcc, and glibc-devel are installed.

In SUSE LINUX 8.2 and older versions, a line in the start script must be changed. For this purpose, open the file /etc/hotplug/usb/speedtouch with an editor of your choice and change the line
 modprobe -k speedtch
 modprobe -k speedtouch

In all versions, the file /etc/hotplug/usb.usermap must be edited by inserting the field 0x0000 as follows:

 speedtouch 0x0003 0x06b9 0x4061 0x0000 0x00 0x00 0x00 0x00 0x00 0x00 0x00000000 "Alcatel SpeedTouch USB"

 speedtouch 0x0003 0x06b9 0x4061 0x0000 0x0000 0x00 0x00 0x00 0x00 0x00 0x00 0x00000000 "Alcatel SpeedTouch USB"

Restart the hotplug service with the command "rchotplug restart".

Start YaST2 and open the module Network/Basic -> DSL Configuration. When asked if T-Online is your provider, answer 'No'. In the next dialog, enter your user name, password, VPI/VCI numbers (e.g., 0.38 for British Telecom), and switch the 'PPP mode' to 'PPP over ATM'.

Hint: You can get the VPI/VCI numbers with the Windows Alcatel Tool or by asking your provider.
